It may still be Winter but Spring is most definitely on the mind, and with the warmer weather comes the need for songs we can daydream to on breezy night drives. Luckily, Jorja Smith, the 20-year-old British singer who is quickly making her mark in the music industry, is here to delivery the perfect melodies for all your upcoming cruises.
In 2016 Smith released “Where Did I Go?” alongside a straightforward and lax DIY music video, now fast forward two years and the song has surpassed 5 million views on YouTube and 13 millions plays on Spotify. Since then the songstress has also performed at festivals, gained a devoted fan base and attained fitting recognition from peers and critics. In 2017 Smith worked with Drake on his More Life album lending her vocals and songwriting skills to the songs “Jorja Interlude” and “Get it Together”. Further recently her song, “On My Mind” featuring artist Preditah, was also covered by Miguel – so, needless to say, but seems we aren’t the only ones crushing on the singer.
The new year has also already shown much love to Smith. She was recently presented the 2018 BRITs Critics Choice Award at the Brits nominations ceremony – where she performed her song “Let Me Down” with hip-hop artist Stormzy. The accolade is one artists Adele, Florence and the Machine and Sam Smith have been past recipients of – so needless to say, she seems to be on the path to musical greatness. Smith has also stated that she will be releasing an album in 2018, and there’s no doubt she will be leaving us all in a calm and reverie state. So, get ready.
